Really? Really Bioware? You guys have to drop this on me now? I already have little time to work, keep up a vague form of a social life and try to catch up on all the forms of entertainment that I have fallen woefully behind on. And now you’re going to tell me that in two months I’m going to have the new Mass Effect game on my plate as well?
For those of you who may be living under a rock or have avoided the internet for the past week Bioware recently revealed that Mass Effect Andromeda will be releasing on May 21st. The game that fans of the series have been waiting for years to release will soon be here for us all to enjoy. We’ve been teased for years and the goal line is finally in sight. We will all get to immerse ourselves in that incredibly rich and vibrant universe again with a host of new characters to get to know and love.
The Problem? You guessed it; I’ll have no goddam time!
If you’ve been reading my ramblings for the past two weeks you’ll know that I have a hilariously large backlog of games that I need to work through. Now while to some this may hardly seem to be a problem at all. Surely I have actual, real problems to focus on. You know, things that actually matter. Of course I do, and I deal with them as they arise. The thing is these games are my method of decompressing or escaping from these issues. Now with all of these great tiles coming out it has become a whole new form of stress. It’s a different, almost pleasant form of stress, but stress none-the-less. Now almost certainly certain games are going to be even further delayed once Andromeda arrives, add to that the fact that I still have Mass Effect 3 to go through and my time keeps shrinking.
I know it may sound like I’m ragging on this subject too much and I don’t mean too. Make no mistake; I am absolutely jacked for this new entry. My excitement levels have been steadily rising as time goes on, and now that I have a release date I can focus all that excitement on a single point. Everything that I have seen about this game from trailers to gameplay footage has looked absolutely stellar. Everything I’ve heard about it make it seem even larger than life. I am so amazingly amped for this game. I just hope I have time to properly enjoy it.
